Try this egg-free vegan mayonnaise recipe that is full of flavor, creamy and tastes delicious just like the store-bought brands. Homemade Eggless Mayonnaise Recipe
It’s because my little one is highly sensitive and intolerant to eggs. He loves mayo but can’t eat the regular kind (one with eggs). It makes his throat itchy and he starts to choke. So, I chose to make a homemade eggless mayonnaise recipe which includes the most crucial question – can you make mayonnaise without eggs?
Yes! sure you can.
I searched and came across this fabulous recipe of eggless mayo that requires –
- no cooking Homemade Eggless Mayonnaise Recipe
- is completely vegan
- can be made in 5 minutes (if using a store-bought can)
- is thick and creamy just like the store-bought mayo.
But how is that possible?
Believe me. It is possible!!
I love mayo with eggs therefore I had to try this vegan version to believe it. And was amazed at the results. The best part – my little kiddo loves it!!
So, what’s the secret to this recipe – Aquafaba!!
Are you familiar with Aquafaba?
Some of us make it almost once every month- Chole/chickpeas. After boiling the chickpeas/chole – the thick cloudy- slimy liquid that floats on top is Aquafaba. It’s the liquid we usually discard while opening a can of chickpeas but that’s the actual ingredient.
Chickpea water absorbs protein from the chickpeas which helps create this thick consistency.
This gelatinous liquid, is a great substitute to eggs!
Yes you heard me right – a great substitute to eggs. Just like eggs, this liquid when whisked gives the same thick, foamy and airy texture. See pic below.
It’s a great leavening agent (one that incorporates gas bubbles into the batter) and a binding agent. That means you can use this in place of eggs? Yes, you can. At present, I do not have a cake/cookie recipe with aquafaba – but will publish it soon.
Now onto the recipe!
It’s a pretty straightforward recipe. I have used store bought chickpea can to make my aquafaba but you can make aquafaba at home too. Follow the instructions below to make homemade aquafaba.
Before you begin, make sure all the ingredients are at room temperature. I have made mayonnaise in 2 ways
- one using vegetable oil
- and other using olive oil.
A hand blender (immersion blender) or a whisk will work great for this recipe. Homemade Eggless Mayonnaise Recipe
The secret to a thick and creamy mayo!
Pour the oil slowly like a stream into the aquafaba while the immersion blender is still running. Keep whisking or blend for 6 minutes and soon, you will notice that aquafaba and oil combination will emulsify into a thick and creamy mayonnaise.
At this point, mayonnaise will be of thick dropping consistency. Chill in the refrigerator for an hour or so and it will become thick. Use as directed.
Feel free to play around with the ingredients. Add garlic powder, crushed black pepper, fresh dill or parsley to the mayo mix for extra flavor. No one can guess that this is egg free mayo – its full of flavor, creamy and delicious just like the regular one.
